Upgraded Kernel, No Sound


Fresh install of Slack 10.0, upgraded the kernel to 2.6.10, and ran alsaconf. Picked intel8x0 module, but when I play anything there's no sound. I turned off the KDE sound system, and no errors come up when I try to play anything, there's just no sound output. I looked at alsamixer and tried unmuting/muting different things, but it doesn't change anything. Is there something more I have to do to get the sound working?

Thanks

Hi.

What app are you using to play? If it's an OSS app (as opposed to ALSA), then you'll need OSS emulation in the kernel as well.

Try this

Code:
modprobe intel8x0
By doing this it will load the module for your soundcard. But also before you do that I would run "lsmod" as root to see if that lists that your sound modules are being loaded properly.

Hope this helps, I know how frusterating no sound is.

I was using Xine and XMMS. I loaded all the OSS modules under Alsa (with modprobe), but it still didn't change. Also, the intel8x0 module was already loaded. Here's my lsmod

Rechecked the .config and recompiled again, tried alsaconf and still no sound. lsmod isn't as cluttered as I didn't try to modprobe anything extra yet

Code:
